I have applied to 3 schools: Westminster, St Pauls and Latymer.
I did not get into Westminster, and I am not surprised, as I knew I had not; I completely messed up the exams. I was such a fool, I analysed the wrong part of the map for Geography, I did not finish the Chemistry or Biology, and did not know there were more questions on the back page for math. I was distraught for weeks, but I have kinda got over it, because at least I know where I messed up. but still
I have not taken the exams for St Pauls yet, but am absolutely freaked out about Latymer.
For entry, you had to write a personal statement, get a reference, get predicted GCSE results, and give a school report.
I was told my personal statement was brilliant by a proffesional, and my reference was really good, and I was predicted 6 A*s and 5 A's. My school report was also fantastic.
However, my friend got a call for an interview, and I still haven't. To be fair, he is a great candidate, but he took some of the stuff that I included on my pers0onal statment onto his. That really pisses me off!
I was told that my personal statment was better by a proffesional, we both have similar predicted grades, and both have great references and great reports....so I am so worried. The letter said we would be notified by the end of December, but he has already been notified. To be fair, they do have 600 applicants; should I be worried. Have I probably not got in. After Westminster, where I did not leave my room for one week I was so depressed, I cannot face rejection again.
Any advice, or anything.
Sorry for the lengthy message,
